CSIRO Manufacturing & Infrastructure Technology (CMIT)

CSIRO Manufacturing and Infrastructure Technology Logo

CSIRO Manufacturing & Infrastructure Technology (CMIT) was formed in July 2002 through the integration of the CSIRO divisions of Building, Construction & Engineering and Manufacturing Science & Technology.

Now one of CSIRO's largest divisions, CMIT has a turnover of over $70 million, with more than 500 specialist staff (350 in research) and laboratories in four states, placed to serve the needs of manufacturing and infrastructure industries.

The division's science is organized around five core capabilities:

  1. Elaborately Transformed Metals - Creating innovative alloys, processes and products.

  2. Novel Materials & Processes - Design and development of innovative materials, processes, and systems.

  3. Complex Systems Integration - Creating technologies to manage elaborate systems.

  4. Sustainable Built Environment - Enhancing whole-of-life performance of built assets and infrastructure.

  5. Energy & Thermofluids Engineering - Improving systems involving complex flows of energy, heat and fluids.

CMIT is accelerating growth in all its core capabilities through alliances with key science partners in the academic, research, and business domains.

CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization)

CSIRO Australia is one of the world's largest and most diverse scientific research institutions. With a staff of more than 6000, CSIRO conducts some 10% of Australia's total R&D effort, including about 12% of the R&D contracted out by industry.

Globally, CSIRO is active in more than 70 countries with over 700 current or recently completed projects.
